    My first boat was a 1970 18' Pachanga. Single 225 hp 327 Chevy/MerCruiser II outdrive.

    They made this as the first generation Pachanga in 1969, 1970 and 1971. It was also offered with a 455 Olds/Berkeley jet drive.

    After 1971 the model name was dropped until 1986 with the emergence of the 22' Pachanga II. Then in 1987 came a 19', 22' and 32' version. The 19' was dropped for 1989 and a single and twin version were offered of a 27' starting in 1989.

    I believe the last Pachangas were built in 1991, as I can't find anything newer in my archives.

    Sea Ray's brief foray into the performance boat market was less than successful enough for them to keep marketing Pachangas. Many felt the first generation Pachanga was years ahead of its time in styling and performance.

    I recently surveyed and sea trialed a 22' Pachanga with a big block and a Bravo 1. It was a joy to drive, really performed well and felt solid.

    I don't remember surveying a 19', 27' or a 32', but I'll check my records for you.

    I owned a 1989 27 Pachanga with T/merc 350mags (270hp), back in summer 89. Nice sport boat. I only had her the summer (3 months), and got the itch for an offshore style boat. Purchased a 1990 F-311 Formula T/454mags (375hp) on Sep 1989. For me thats where it all started the 27 Pachanga.

    Well made, Ok. But not a performance boat. I never saw one go 70 except while being towed down the highway.

    I have no real complaints with my 27' besides the lack of speed. With everything perfect she will work her way up to 60 with twin 350 mags/270hp approx. 850hrs. They are definitely a heavy boat, but brake the chop nicely and have a decent amount of cabin space.

    Back in the late 90's my first boat was an '87 22 II with a 350mag. If I remember correctly it was around 60-61 on gps. I loved that boat, very fun for my first boat and actually wish I could find one for couple grand that needs a new engine that I could do myself. Ahh the good times.
